Brazilian Salmon








  • 4 salmon fillets
  • Juice of 1 Large Lemon
  • Zest of 1 large Orange
  • 2 tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 clove Garlic , minced
  • 2 tablespoons Butter , melted


  • In a shallow dish large enough to hold the salmon, combine the juices, salt and pepper.
  • Add the salmon, turning to coat with the marinade.
  • Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, turning the fillets once.
  • Preheat the oven to 425F.
  • Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil and grease with a little of the melted butter.
  • In a small dish, combine the orange zest, brown sugar, chili powder and minced garlic.
  • Rub the marinated salmon with the brown sugar mixture.
  • Place in the pan and drizzle with the remaining melted butter.
  • Bake for 8 to 12 minutes.
  • The big challenge here is not overcooking the fillets- 8 minutes will do for thin fillets (less than 1 inch) and no more than 12 minutes for the thicker fillets.
